I was all set to watch it but noticed that I had missed the first episode. I'm not sure if there is a way to catch up.

I've also been enjoying it on Now TV. Usually Now give you all 7 episodes in total, but not this time. Kate Winslet is superb, even without makeup, she looks great. Good story line, with lots of unknown young actors doing a fine job. I've just watched episode 3, can't wait for the next one! Recommended.

Haven't seen Ep. 3 yet (downloaded though) but you're right John. Excellent series, excellent acting by all. Bit mubbled in parts IMHO but that could be my lugholes of course.

Re: Mare of Easttown

Dramatic and shocking end to ep4.

Btw I get what you are saying about the accent.

This isnt the Bright and Shiny Californian accent we're used to it's the Pennsylvanian/Philly accent known as 'Delco'
It's the authentic accent of the region and a bit more gritty.
I must reiterate once again that Kate Winslett's performance is brilliant.

Re: Mare of Easttown

Just caught up with the final episode.

Shocking twist to the whole affair.


Brilliant from beginning to end and deserves all the plaudits it's been getting

Well worth a watch.

Re: Mare of Easttown

I watched the first episode and couldn't make head nor tail of it.
I am also not a big fan of Kate Winslet as I always feel she has a supercilious expression about her.

As my brother has raved about this series and now you Moscow, l have decided to give it another go!

I will return to this thread with my findings!!

Re: Mare of Easttown

Well, after all the good reports on this thread, l gave it another go! It was so gripping l stayed up until 1.30am today to watch most of it.
I have just watched the last episode as l was so tired to watch it all at 1.30am!

I loved Mare’s mother, she was so funny!
All the acting was excellent, even the little children.
